Found Objects: “Call Me Ishmael” Bookends

By

I found these vintage children’s bookends in a box of paraphernalia that came from my grandmother’s house.  I fell in love with their little mischievous faces.  I also find it hilarious that their boat is named “Pequod,” which is the name of Ishmael’s boat in _Moby Dick_ that tragically sinks and leaves Ishmael the only survivor.  So I guess these guys must be Ishmaels.  True to their name, they have survived culling; I have saved them and given them a home on the bookshelf in Baby T’s room.  Which, incidentally, is starting to come together.  I love it when I find little gems like my Ishmaels.
